Featured Site: Numberphile

Numberphile is a website containing short videos (approx. 5-10 min.) about numbers and stuff. Mathematicians and physicists play around with the tools of their trade and explain things in simple, clear language. Learn things you didn't know you were interested in! Find out why 493-7775 is a pretty cool phone number! What's the significance of 42, anyway? What the heck is a vampire number? Why does Pac-Man have only 255 screens?

Suitable for viewing by everyone from intelligent and curious middle-schoolers to math-impaired adults. They also have a fantastic YouTube channel.
